Family Compound on Alta Plaza Park!
Built in 1898 by renowned architect Augustus Laver, known for landmark buildings including the original San Francisco City Hall and the Flood Mansion currently used as the Pacific Union Club, this multi-unit Queen Anne Victorian is a trophy property in the heart of Pacific Heights directly across from Alta Plaza Park. Rooted in this history, the home was constructed as a family compound and has been transformed into 6 individual units, all vacant and ready for lease occupancy. The entire property has undergone extensive renovations demonstrating pride-of-ownership while maintaining classic of-the-era details combined with luxury living for today. The 6 units comprise one 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath owner’s unit, a 2-bedroom, 1-bath unit on the first floor, two 1-bedroom, 1-bath units on the third floor, plus a junior 1-bedroom, 1-bath and a studio, 1-bath on the top floor.
South-facing views fill the units with an abundance of natural light, including verdant vistas of Alta Plaza Park. Tall ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors, and refined millwork combine throughout for a chic and stylish ambiance. Stamped tin wainscot and ceilings recall the property’s early heritage while luxurious new tiles, marble, and stones add designer appeal along with chrome hardware and high-end appliances. Kitchens are beautifully updated as are the bathrooms. Fireplaces enhance the setting in some units and three units have wonderful outdoor venues for fresh-air enjoyment. The signature unit is the two-story owner’s residence with exquisite details and luxe living throughout. The largest by far, it encompasses the entire second floor and part of the third floor via a connecting spiral staircase. Each unit has a shared hallway or outside entrance and there is shared laundry and storage on the ground floor along with a one-car garage for the owner’s residence.
Completing the appeal, this property has an outstanding location directly across from Alta Plaza Park with tennis courts, just 5 blocks to the Presidio, a 1,500-acre national park site. And, with a Walk Score of 95, a Walker’s Paradise, find an array of shops and restaurants on Fillmore just down the street.
